The Laois Rose of Tralee hopefuls had a ball chancing their luck at bingo in Portlaoise and were treated to a lovely shopping experience as part of their Laois Rose journey.

A great night was had at bingo in St Mary's Hall in Portlaoise as the entrants got to know each other with some winners thrown in for good luck. This trip to bingo was inspired by Laois Rose entrant Rachel Walsh who is a huge bingo fan and is sponsored by Portlaoise Parish Lotto. 

The Laois Rose entrants did a spot of shopping at Laois Shopping Centre and were treated to some goodie bags giving them a feel for the Rose life.

The Laois Rose selection night is fast approaching and takes place on Friday, April 19 in the beautiful setting of Castle Durrow. 

Find out who all of this year's Laois Rose entrants are in next Tuesday's (April 16) Leinster Express newspaper.
